Nils Frahm began his tour at Knockdown Center (pics)

Do you think about your listener when composing?

No, I’m the listener. It’s just like when I choose music for people when they’re having dinner with me at home: I want something I’d like to hear but also something I’d like to show somebody. I have the same instinct with my own music. I want to enjoy myself with it and I want to be its biggest fan. And it has to be something I also want to show my friends.

What’s your musical guilty pleasure?

I have a soft spot for German dance/techno from the nineties. Pretty spectacular but horrible. I also enjoy David Hasselhoff and Rammstein! – [Forbes]

German composer and producer Nils Frahm, who released the gorgeous All Melody earlier this year, kicked off his 2018 North American tour with a sold out, cathartic and beautiful show at NYC’s Knockdown Center on March 15. Nils raced around between a grand piano, a large bank of keyboards and analogue electronics, and a custom-build pipe organ which he could control via MIDI. The crowd was mesmerized and pictures from his Knockdown Center show are in this post.

Nils’ tour plays its second of two Boston-area shows tonight. Remaining tour dates are listed below.
